1. Reply to this post with “MORTICIA”, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

From my darling [ profile] neon_footprint:

There is a frog umbrella. What more of an explanation do you want from me?
The image I found on weheartit, I think, when I was going through my brief stock phase. I still like the soft coloring, though I admit, I owe a lot of the asthetics to the original photographer. But yeah. This? FROG. UMBRELLA.

This icon was one of those happy accidents! I LOVE Katie McGrath (lol what else is new), and I especially love the modeling she's done! I was experimenting with cropping and layering textures under and over the subject for a more seamless look than slapping a cut out on a new background. And this looked awesome so I rolled with it! The pose is what makes this though.

Oh god. This...was made during my Great Panic Obsession of 2010 (I think?). Camisado was one of those instant favorite songs, maybe because I related to the broken hom lyrics a little too much. This is part of the line "It's not so pleasant and it's not so conventional/it sure as hell ain't normal/but we deal, we deal" that has always struck such a cord with me. It's one of those lyrics that makes me feel, whether I want to or not. I was iconing with the song on repeat, and this happened. Colin looks so amazingly emo here which was perfect. I do look back at the text use and cringe. Hopefully I've improved!

This is another Katie M icon! I see through you, Ruth! Though I suppose you can't really tell. It's so atmospheric though...makes me think of lazy days in Paris flats, smoking on the balcony. It feels like a story. The coloring was an experiment with exclusion layers, so give it that blue tinge, I think.

If you don't recognize the cap, you need to go watch The Overture, a short film thingy by Panic! Not only is there terrible acting and boys being adorable, there's also this gorgeous scene in the 'ballerina's room' where Brendon dances with this girl. It's stunning. See icon. I knew I wanted to make something with it, but it's difficult to work with. The caps are very dull and low contrast + low light, and the available video isn't exactly high quality. It was tough! But I'm really proud of the cropping here, how you can just see Brendon's mouth, and how much emotion is conveyed just in his grip. It's just such a gorgeous sequence, I wish I was able to do it more justice!

So, these dudes had some birthdays the past few days.

Quality tweeting ensued including this:

(Just in case you didn't know, Ryan/Spencer BFFness is pretty much my favorite thing in the world. I just want them to have combined birthday parties at laser tag forever okay?)
If someone wanted to make a RYAN AND SPENCER BEST FRIENDS FOREVER spam in honor of their birthdays I wouldn't complain. JSYK.

I watched Sherlock! Finally! It was love. I made some icons and stuff, it was great. Will get around to posting them hopefully soon. Want to round it out with a few more Merlin ones before.

Speaking of....Isn't it about time for some new Merlin shenanigans? GETTING IMPATIENT. Nearly finished another ficlet for that comment meme thing I did. Slowest writer ever /O\
